GeForce GTS 450 1GB vs GeForce GTX 965M

Intro

The GeForce GTS 450 1GB makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 783 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 902 MHz on this particular card. It features 192 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 965M, which comes with GPU core speed of 944 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 965M 60 Watts
GeForce GTS 450 1GB 106 Watts
Difference: 46 Watts (77%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 965M is 11% faster than the GeForce GTS 450 1GB overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 64000 MB/sec
GeForce GTS 450 1GB 57728 MB/sec
Difference: 6272 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 965M is quite a bit (more or less 141%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTS 450 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 60416 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTS 450 1GB 25056 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 35360 (141%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 965M is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 30208 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTS 450 1GB 12528 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 17680 (141%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
